According to an article at today.com, “How to Care for Hardwood Floors”

In high-traffic areas, like the dining room and kitchen, you should sweep daily, if possible, and mop once or twice a week. Mop less-trafficked areas once a month or once a season.

Mopping technique Remember: Water is wood’s worst enemy (even on sealed floors!), so use a damp mop rather than a soaking wet one.

Dip the mop into the bucket of prepared cleaning solution, wring it out completely, mop in the direction of the wood grain and repeat. When the water gets dirty, empty the bucket, mix a new batch of cleaning solution and continue mopping.

When finished, go back over the entire surface with clean water to rinse.

Don’t be afraid to get on your hands and knees if necessary. When a floor needs serious attention, I clean it with a cloth. (It’s better than a sponge because you can “feel” the dirt as you wipe!)

Tackling simple wood floor problems

Scuff marks getting you down?

A bit of baking soda on a damp sponge will erase them.

Noticed a stubborn food, water or grease stain on your surface-sealed floor?

Always use a commercial cleaner to treat this problem.

Hairline cracks in the floor?

Don’t panic and attempt to fill them. Dry heat during the winter months’ causes wood floors to shrink and crack. Cracks should close up during the summer (though using a humidifier can also help).” To read the entire article click here.
